In the daytime equivalent of throwing a fit, taking your ball and going home, Joy Behar just scored the hat trick.
The moment wasn’t recorded live on the air, but reportedly happened off air.
The off air argument reportedly happened when Behar used the passing of George H.W. Bush, to bash President Trump and Meghan McCain was having none of it.
She called her out and that’s when things allegedly turned ugly.
The DailyMail has more:
What was meant to be a heartwarming tribute to President George H. W. Bush on The View Monday ended in an ugly shouting match between Meghan McCain and Joy Behar after the discussion at the table turned political.
Moderator Whoopi Goldberg was forced to cut to commercial break after viewers saw the two hosts go at it during a heated exchange - which later escalated off air, a show insider told DailyMail.com.
The episode kicked off with a Hot Topics segment intended to honor the late 41st president, who died on Friday, with the co-hosts taking turns to speak on his legacy.
But just a few minutes in, the conversation went south when Behar threw Trump's name into the mix while commending Bush's support for environmental issues.
'I want to say one thing about him that was not picked up really, because as a candidate he said, "Those who think we're powerless to do anything about the greenhouse effect, are forgetting about the White House effect," then he signed into law the Clean Air Act amendment of 1990, one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever,' she said.
'This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did, and if I ever become a one-issue voter it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect -' she said before being interrupted.
'Can we focus on the president, please. I don't want to talk about Trump, we're honoring a great president,' McCain interjected.
Behar shot back: 'Excuse me a second, please. I want to talk about - ' before McCain cut her off again saying: 'We're honoring a great president who passed and I'm not interested in your one-issue voting.'
Behar fired back: 'I don't care what you're interested in. I'm talking!'
McCain countered: 'Well I don't care what you're interested in either, Joy!' before Whoopi quickly called for a commercial break.
Behar was then seen slamming her cue cards on the table and turning to sound off on McCain just as producers cut to break. Producers muted Behar's microphone so that her expletives would not be heard on air.
But the source told DailyMail.com that Behar threw her hands in the air, yelled 'My God!' and 'Get this b***h under control.'
'If this s**t doesn't stop I'm quitting this damn show. I can't take this much more,' Behar allegedly fumed.
Producers ran to the stage in an attempt to deescalate the situation, but Behar continued to rant, the source said.
'I've tolerated a lot of s**t on this show but I'm at my wits' end with this entitled b***h. Enough already! Enough already! I'm not playing nice any longer,' Behar shouted, despite the studio audience being able to hear it all.
Breitbart also had more:
The View co-host Joy Behar called Meghan McCain an “entitled bitch” and threatened to quit if the producers don’t “get this bitch under control.”
Behar used, what was supposed to be a tribute to President George H.W. Bush, as an opportunity to trash President Trump, reports the Daily Mail.
After she praised the late president for signing the Clean Air Act as president, Behar turned that praise into a club against Trump and a soapbox for her own left-wing politics.
“This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did, and if I ever become a one-issue voter it will be about pollution and the greenhouse eff–” and this is where McCain jumped in.
“Can we focus on the president, please. I don’t want to talk about Trump, we’re honoring a great president,” she said.
And then it got ugly:
Behar: “Excuse me a second, please. I want to talk about–”
McCain: “We’re honoring a great president who passed and I’m not interested in your one-issue voting.”
Behar: “I don’t care what you’re interested in. I’m talking!”
McCain: “Well I don’t care what you’re interested in either, Joy.”
At this point, Whoopi Goldberg cut to a commercial break, and as the camera moves away, you can see the two of them lean into each other yelling.
According to a Daily Mail source, immediately after, while off the air but still in front of the studio audience, Behar blew up:
Behar threw her hands in the air, yelled ‘My God!’ and ‘Get this b***h under control.’
‘If this s**t doesn’t stop I’m quitting this damn show. I can’t take this much more,’ Behar allegedly fumed.
Producers ran to the stage in an attempt to de-escalate the situation, but Behar continued to rant, the source said.
‘I’ve tolerated a lot of s**t on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled b***h. Enough already! Enough already! I’m not playing nice any longer,’ Behar shouted, despite the studio audience being able to hear it all.
Joy Behar calling McCain a “bitch” comes just days after Behar called Kid Rock out for calling her a “bitch.”
